Attention fans of Andre Norton.

 

Hello Kind Folks,

I have an idea for a new project but I need help.

The Idea – a pronunciation guide for names, places and other terms in Andre’s work.

I often get asked, how do you pronounce this name or that place. And truthfully, I have no idea. Generally my spelling sucks. And lets face it, a lot of names and places Andre used are hard to pronounce, especially in the Witch World Saga. For those of you who think I’m nuts or just plain stupid, you are just the person I need.

I would like to send out a list of names, places or things (even the ones I can pronounce) and get people to do the grammatical notation of said word. I still have to create a list but it wouldn’t take to long using all the glossaries I’ve collected and posted on the website over the years. Then I would go through those glossaries and add the grammatical info to it.

And so – I’m looking for volunteers to help with said project. I really want several people to help so I can see what multiple people think of each word.  You can sign up by emailing me at webmaster@andre-norton-books.com.

Any and all help will be deeply appreciated. Again I’m looking for volunteers for I can’t afford to pay you. I can however give you credit on the website.

Synopsis ~

Write-up from the front flap of the dustjacket ~

John Bullard was born on Terra, in the ancient district of Ohio, in 3915, and his story is science fiction in the tradition of fine storytelling. No bug-eyed monsters of the “space operas” here, but the adventures of a clever man, not physically outstanding in any way, who passed almost unnoticed from the Patrol Academy into the Service, there to become the almost legendary hero of the space fleet.
Keeping the peace of the inner and outer planets was no easy job. It fell to Commander Bullard to put down the rebellious criminals long since banished to other planets, to fight in grim wars which encompassed not the nations of our time but the planets of the universe, and last but not least, to cut through the red tape of Terra’s bureaucracy. His clever use of the extraordinary machines and weapons of a future age brought him a fame unequaled among the mariners of deep space.
As a hero of science fiction, Commander Bullard has no equal. His fantastic, often humorous, but always logical adventures have long been favorites of science-fiction addicts.

 

Write-up from the rear cover of Space Service ~

The story of Commander John Bullard, whose armadas waged the grimmest of all wars in the black night of outer space where the slightest miscalculation meant death in an interstellar vacuum.
John Bullard was born on Terra, in the ancient district of Ohio, in 3915. A clever man, not physically outstanding in any way, he passed almost unnoticed from the Patrol Academy into the Service.

The dean of science-fiction writers, Malcolm Jameson writes of the future with precision and imagination. Bullard is a very human hero whose adventures will fascinate all readers.
